RE: Want to open new tabs and switch between them


I have a scenario in which I need to open 2 tabs in the same browser and then perform actions that will run in a loop.

After the loop (set of actions) is complete then close the browser.

Is it possible to open 1st tab -> perform respective actions -> then open 2nd tab and perform  respective actions -> repeat these steps around 20 time s and then close it ????

// 1) Launch new Browser, create an instance of FirefoxDriver.
driver = new FirefoxDriver();

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

// 2) Open URL

// 3) Get Window name (Use GetWindowHandle command)
// To get the window handle of the current window.
String handle = driver.getWindowHandle();//Return a string of alphanumeric window handle


// 4) Click on Button “New Message Window”, it will open a Pop Up Window
driver.findElement(“New Message Window”)).click();

// Store and Print the name of all the windows open, get all windows
Set<String> handles = driver.getWindowHandles();

// Pass a window handle to the other window
for(String handle1 : driver.getWindowHandles())
System.out.println(“Window Handle: ” + handle1);

// Store and Print the name of all the windows open
Iterator<String> iteratorP = handles.iterator();
while (iteratorP.hasNext()) {
System.out.println(“Window Handle: ” +;

// 6) Close the Pop Up Window (Use Switch Command to shift window)

driver.switchTo().window(handle); // switch back to parent window

//Close the browser
